We have been questioned many times, why manual focus? (Because it makes you feel like a pro) Manual focus allows you to have more control in hand, and stay focus at one point. It works great when doing macro shooting.


manual focus

How to do manual focus?

Rotate the focus ring counter-clockwise steadily to set focus on object ranging between 7cm to 80cm away until the image is sharp.


What about the object beyond 80cm away?

Introducing the green mark. The green arrow mark on the focus ring is called the focus mark. The camera is set to focus on objects beyond 80cm away when the green mark is in the pre-set position (aligning with the status LED). You can feel the click-in when green mark is rotated to the pre-set position.

Shooting Demonstration

Use the USB cable provided to connect the USB-C charging port of the camera with a 5V DC power source. When charging is in progress, the status LED turnsred. When the battery is fully charged, the status LED turns green. The status LED is off if the battery is fully charged and the camera is turned OFF. 

Yes, you can. If the battery level is below the charging threshold, charging begins and the status LED turns red.

ATLI EON uses Li-Ion battery which has an estimated life of 2 to 3 years or 300 to 500 charge cycles. It is recommended to have the battery removed from the camera and stored separately at temperatures between 5 °C and 20 °C (41 °F and 68 °F) if the camera is not going to be used for a long period of time.

Battery life for time lapse shooting depends on the shooting interval, lighting condition, and whether the power saving mode is enabled. 

*Without the power saving mode enabled, the estimated battery life for a fully charged new battery is about 7 hours. 

*With power saving enabled, the battery life can be extended, and the estimated battery is shown as below. battery&charging

The micro SD card that comes in the package is 16GB. ATLI EON supports up to a maximum 128GB micro SD card. Memory usage depends on the time lapse output setting. You can either select Video only or Video + Photo Sequence. 

Photo Sequence takes up more memory since all frames taken will be stored separately in jpg format. For long duration time lapse shooting, it would be important for you to estimate how much memory is required and decide whether a larger capacity SD card is required or adjusting the shooting interval to accommodate the capacity of the SD card.

For time lapse video, the frame rate is preset to 25 fps and a typical frame size is around 50KB. The actual frame size varies from 20KB to 100KB depending on the target scene, camera settings, and lighting conditions. For estimation, you can use 50KB. 

No you can't set up your own. The frame rate for time lapse videos is fixed and cannot be changed. You can only set up your own for normal videos and the maximum frame rate is 25 fps. 

If you know what shooting interval you want, you can start to calculate the memory usage. Let's take 1s shooting interval as example. This gives 60 frames each minute and 3600 frames an hour. The estimated memory usage per hour is 180 MB = 3600 x 50KB. For a 128GB SD card, you will get ~29 days = 711 hours = 128GB/0.18GB/hr. In order to cover 3 months, you can change the shooting interval to at least 4s or use an SD card with 64 GB or bigger. 

If you don’t need to shoot 24 hours a day continuously, you can use “Schedule” to define the time slot(s) you want to shoot. This will reduce the memory usage significantly. 

Note: The maximum number of frames per time lapse video is 15,000 (Default 25fps and 10 minutes playback). If the limit is reached, frames from the existing task will then be saved to another video file. Rather saving a time lapse video in one big file, you can save it by “Per Time Slot” or “Per Day” using the “Schedule” feature. This offers an easy way to manage and view the recorded time lapse footages.

Photo Sequence output enables the camera to save all photos taken in a separate folder. This is required for creating a time slice photo. The photo size may vary from 0.5 to 2MB depending on the target scene, camera settings and lighting condition. 

For memory usage estimation, we recommend using 1MB per photo. Let’s use the same example with shooting interval of 1s for 1 hr, the estimated memory usage for all photos taken is 3600 x 1MB = 3.6GB. This is approximately 20 times more than the corresponding time lapse video. If you want to do some post processing and time slicing, you will need to select and save the photo sequence.

Power Saving helps extend the battery life for long-term time lapse recording. When Power Saving is on, the camera will go to sleep after 10 mins of no activity on the app. To wake the camera up, slightly touch the power button and wait approximately 10 seconds until the status LED turns green. 

There are two options in  Power saving modes.


Common (On):

When Common is on, camera will not go to sleep when connect to a power source (could be a power bank or a charger base).

Mandatory (On):

When Mandatory is on, camera will not be awake even when it's plugged-in.

Power Saving Mode  

No you can't. To view on the app, please wake the camera up and reconnect it to the app.

Usually we recommend our customers to keep the camera plugged-in if possible. When camera is plugged-in, you can access the camera anytime without having to reconnect to the app again and again.


If you are going to do a long-term time lapse, like hours, or days, and have no power source around you, turning on the Power Saving is a good option to extend the battery life as long as possible. 

Mandatory is designed for an extreme situation where to maximize the battery life. For example, if you want to do a long-term time lapse, and only have a power bank for backup. If you keep the power bank attached to the camera and turn Common on, the camera will consume power from the power bank constantly to keep the camera awake. If you turn Mandatory on, the camera will only consume power when needed.  

Idle or not connected with the ATLI CAM App for more than 10 mins, it will turn off in order to save battery power. User can keep the camera from turning off by connecting an external power source to its USB-C charging port and NOT having the power saving mode set to ON (Mandatory). 

Before using a power bank for external power supply, please make sure that the power bank will not turn off itself after a full charge. Some power bank will automatically shut off after detecting  a full charge. In this case, the camera will not be recharged again.

Remote access allows ATLI tech supports to access your camera over the air securely.

  1. Connect the camera to local Wi-Fi via WLAN
  2. Go to Settings > Advanced > Enable Remote Support


remote support


Note: Remote Support will be disabled automatically when the camera is off.

The control interface for the ATLI EON is based on HTTP protocol. This makes it possible to access the ATLI EON by using a web browser. 

First, setup the ATLI’s Wi-Fi connection as described in ATLI EON Wi-Fi Configurations. For direct Wi-Fi connection, the preset ATLI EON’s IP address is For connection via a local Wi-Fi, please refer to ATLI EON Wi-Fi Configurations for more details.

Once you know your ATLI EON’s IP address, you can then proceed to start a web browser. Enter the IP address in the address field and enter the web authentication code as prompted. You will then enter the ATLI EON camera web interface which is almost identical to what you see in the ATLI Cam App. 

web browser-IP

This application note introduces the concept of accessing an ATLI EON camera from internet as shown in the diagram below.

ATLI EON Wi-Fi Configurations and Access ATLI EON by using a web browser discuss how to access an ATLI EON camera by using the ATLI Cam App or a web browser. However, both methods require the camera(s) and smart device(s) to be in the same network. There are different workarounds and some will require hardware or additional server support. In this application note, we are going to discuss a simple method that does not require any additional cost. However, it will require some networking knowledge in router configurations as stated below.

1. Public IP / DDNS 

You can skip this step if you have a static public IP address connection. Majority of internet connections are using dynamic public IP which will change time to time by your internet service provider. In this case, you will have to configure the DDNS in your router. Most router suppliers are offering DDNS as a free service now. Please check with your router user manual for more information. 

2. Port Forward 

After your ATLI EON camera connected to your local network, you will need to configure Port Forward in order to enable the router to forward external internet traffics to the camera. Before you proceed, you need to find the internal IP address assigned to the camera. You can view this under the WLAN status in the camera settings (ref to AN001 P.3-5). You can also find the camera’s internal IP address from the device(s) list of your router interface. Select Port Forward in your router setting and add a port forward rule. The internal IP is the IP assigned to the camera, the internal port number is 80, and the external port number is an unused port, says 8080. Click save and apply to enable the port forward setting. Now you should be able to access the camera interface remotely via a web browser. In the address field, enter http://<public ip/ddns address>:<external port number> to access the camera interface. 

A built-in FTP server is now supported in the firmware T100-3.03 and above. This allows users to batch download image/video files in the camera’s album via a FTP client such as FileZilla (Window/Mac), FTP Manager (iOS), or AndFTP (Android).

More Tips

Connect to a Power Adapter Depending on your project duration, it is highly recommended to shoot a long time-lapse with stable external power source, preferably a permanent power source. Thus, you won’t need to turn on the Power Saving mode and the camera can stay connected with your device(s) running the aTLi Cam App. 

Connect to a Large Capacity Power Bank with Power Saving mode set to “On (Mandatory)” that enables the camera to go into power saving mode even with external power connected to maximize its shooting duration.

For Time Lapse VIDEO only, each time lapse frame is about 50KB (average) and 16GB can store 16GB/50KB/frame = 320,000 frames. For continuous shooting with an interval of 1 second per frame, the maximum shooting duration is 

320,000 / (60x60) frames/hr = approx. 88 hrs.

Without using a larger capacity SD card, you can increase the shooting duration by increasing the shooting interval. 

For Video + Photo Sequence, the memory consumption is going to increase significantly. Each photo estimates to consume 1MB and each video frame consumes 50KB. The maximum shooting duration for a 16GB SD card will be

16GB / (1MB + 0.05MB) / (60 x 60) = approx. 4 hrs.
